North Central Health Care Christmas Donation Drive. The Ladies Council is sponsoring a Parish wide donation drive for the patients and residents of Mount View Care Center, the inpatient hospital, group homes and Crisis Services. Below is a list of items needed. We would like to collect donations to be used for the many residents that would not otherwise receive a gift this year.
Drop off NEW unwrapped items or monetary donations at the Parish Office. We will accept donations until December 18.
Meetings. The first Thursday of every other month, October through May (the bulletin is our mode of notification). We begin our meetings with a social and periodically have guest speakers.
Bake Sales. The first weekend in December with a raffle and Palm Sunday weekend.
Take and Bake Pizza Sale. We assemble pizzas that are preordered.
These are our main fundraisers. Our monies are directed to parish and community needs and for scholarships. We invite all women of the parish to support these sales.
Holy Treasures Rummage Sale. Is held periodically during Spring break and has profited up to $6,000.00 to benefit the parish. Many volunteers are needed to make this a successful event. Parishioners are asked to save and donate their gently used items and new items are appreciated.
Bingo. We coordinate and sponsor bingo five times per year at Kennedy Park Medical and Rehabilitation Center.
Baby Quilts. A quilt is sewn for each child who is baptized in the parish.
Funeral Committee. The committee hosts the luncheon following funerals in the parish. We can use the help of additional women and men. All women of the parish are invited (two or three times per year depending on the number of funerals) to bake bars or prepare a salad.
Dinner Parties. We gather for a Christmas dinner party in December and a spring dinner party in May. Other parties may be thrown in throughout the year (i.e. Mardi Gras, etc.).
